I did something similar with red kidney beans and it tasted delicious, much better than hummus in my opinion. Thanks for the recipe.

If I could give this 10 stars I would! It’s just bursting with flavour. The lemon and sun dried tomatoes are the stars of this recipe. I think you could layer anything on top of it and it will taste good. It’s just so wow!

Woohoo! So happy that the white bean dip is being enjoyed, Angela, thank you 🙌

Un dip parfait pour changer du houmous. Facile et équilibré. A refaire quand on reçoit du monde

Delicious. Reminds me of my childhood, when nobody had heard of hummus but we were mixing white beans into a creamy paste and a sauce made of fried onion, garlic and tomato paste. We’d toast bread, rub it with garlic and add the bean paste and a generous serving of the topping!

Aw love the personal connection to the recipe, Carla, thanks for sharing your childhood recipe and experience with this dip 🥰

Hey I wanted to know about a substitute for balsamic vinegar as I can't really afford it right now but want to try out this mouth watering dip 🥺

PUL Team - Nov. 1, 2022, 6:08 a.m.

Hey Sharmita! Balsamic vinegar helps to add flavour and depth to the dip. You could omit it, or experiment with an alternative vinegar with sugar to taste. For example, red wine vinegar with some syrup often works well 🙂

just made it with chickpeas instead of the white beans. also very good.

PUL Team - Aug. 10, 2022, 8:21 a.m.

A lovely idea, Michaela, thanks for the insight!

I saute mybonions with portobello mushrooms and added that into the mix. It was phenomenal. Waiting 2 hours before consuming is key.

PUL Team - May 23, 2022, 1:45 a.m.

Ooo thanks for the tip, V, it means so much 😃

Jonna - Nov. 19, 2021, 1:34 p.m.

Just had this on some Swedish crisp bread and the combo is delicious! This is a creamy dip with depth and umami and it works really well with something crispy.

PUL Team - Nov. 20, 2021, 5:04 a.m.

Mmm sounds lovely, Jonna, we're so happy the dip was enjoyed 🤗

Nicolle - Aug. 15, 2021, 8:25 p.m.

This is so delicious!!!! I have made this dip several times.

Angie - July 24, 2021, 10:44 a.m.

This tasted great! Put it in a veggie wrap. I love to include beans whenever I can, and this was a refreshing change- white beans are so mild it didn't feel bean-forward at all. Just yummy flavors of sundried tomato (ok may have put extra of those). Thx!

PUL Team - July 25, 2021, 9:31 p.m.

Thanks for taking the time to share, Angie, so thrilled you're enjoying the white bean dip 😃

Ruben M.C - July 8, 2021, 11:37 p.m.

I love the tanginess of the lemon and vinegar and the freshness of the chives in this one, it's addictive!

Cris S - June 5, 2021, 5:45 p.m.

I liked the hummuses best, but this was a welcome alternative!

PUL Team - June 6, 2021, 12:06 a.m.

So glad to hear, Cris, it's always fun to change it up occasionally!
